  1. Are you not bothering with a winter forecast this year Steve?  I see you've changed your profile name for the first time ever Steve?

    It's ashame you don't do your winter forecasts anymore.  I've always loved your seasonal forecasts.

      Thanks -

      No real point any more- Data not sufficient & total sum of info available beyond current capacity to forecast for this little island!

  2. Scott's video thread has gone now.  :(  forum.netweather.tv/topic/84179-scotts-historic-weather-videos

    That's a pity because I really loved Scott's historical weather videos.  They were really great.

    Here's the stupid error that came up:-

      Yeah he even gave me hell in November.

  3. After this bloody year, I feel like my biggest ever mistake was surviving 2017.

  6. CAGW skeptics are blaming global warming on good old oxygen and nitrogen whilst downplaying Carbon Dioxide, Methane and Water vapor!  What's the next piece of garbage there gonna come up with when that falls flat!?

      Ha ha, they're probably all flat earthers and anti-vaxxers too.

      Lol, forgot about the infamous torpedo. What winter was that now and did it ever fire?!

    3. Lettucing Gutted

      Lettucing Gutted

      That would be the infamous "winter" 2015/2016.  After that awful recordbreakingly mild, wet, windy and stormy monsoonal December, I remember the papers in early January 2016 were hyping up a so-called frigid Polar Vortex to hit the UK after the Arctic Stratosphere was "torpedoed" by an exceptionable Sudden Stratospheric Warming event.  Needless to say it was a non event for the UK.

    4. Weather-history

      Weather-history

      That's an example of where not to use a soundbite in a desperate world.  It was clutched onto like a drowning man to a straw and morphed to an out of control monster. 

  11. I am not going to bring any children into this unjust, overheating and overpopulated world.

    1. karyo

      karyo

      Good! As you say, the planet is overpopulated already.

  12. I believe algae removing carbon dioxide from the air may be our best hope against runaway global warming.

      I have some on my pond ,you can have it if you want it ??

  13. I hate it when forecasts rub it in these days by saying "no easterly" or "no beast from the east".

      Have to agree with everything that others have already said; there is help out there. Just don't allow yourself to be dragged down by those who simply do not understand our difficulties: they know not what they do...:D

      I was sorry to read this. I can sympathise with you. Do what everyone else has said and do talk to someone. It won't be an instant fix, recovery can be slow and erratic, there are no shortcuts I'm afraid, but it is important to talk when you reach a crisis point like you have. It is my sincere hope that things get better for you. If you can, get outside and enjoy this sunshine, be physically active, eat properly too. Those things actually have a proven physiological effect that can help improve your mood. All the best.

      I’m sure this has been said , but please feel free to message any of us on here even if it’s just to sound off ... thinking of you x

  15. I hate these bloody named Atlantic storms!  The curse of "Winter" 2015/2016 lives on!

  16. I hope your May 2018 CET forecast comes off.:good:

    1. Ice Man 85

      Ice Man 85

      Well a warm up next weekend is looking odds on now. The GFS pub run is a peach. Considering how wide of the mark the GFS was last time, mid 20s won't be out of the question. The EC 46 still paints a below average picture for May, but I can't see how that will verify at this rate.

  17. I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm not Noah.  I wish I was though.

    1. Ed Stone

      Build it, they will come.

    2. Mokidugway

      Mokidugway

      Rub it ,it will come 🤔

  18. It always disheartens me when I hear about exceptional Arctic warmth and low sea ice. :(

  19. It looks like only geo engineering could have any chance of undooming us from more than +2C global warming

    1. Gray-Wolf

      Gray-Wolf

      I(t just worries me as that is how we got into this mess in the first place! I suppose this time around we will be very mindful of our impacts though?

      I am sure carbon capture, of various applications, will become widely available to us should we will it so ...... it is just getting that 'will' organised and I'm still afraid that it will take something truly horrible to garner it from the masses?

      No politician wants to commit to massive spending on this but once they are 'forced to' then it will not be a 'choice' ( free will) but a 'response' ( forced action)?

    2. Lettucing Gutted

      Lettucing Gutted

      The question is, what "force" would it take?  If it takes something devastating like a methane burp or the irreversible collapse of the remaining icesheets or all the rainforests or any combination of the above to "force" the world into action then even the most powerful and farfetched geoengineering won't save us from a runway greenhouse state.

  20. It sucks that we can't edit out forum posts anymore...

      Only if we could edit other posters' posts...A nightmare for the mods, too.:D

      that would be very very bad. 

      We need an edit thingy on status.:good:

    4. Paul

      Yep, would be nice to have an edit function on these, but the software doesn't allow it at the moment. It's still possible to edit posts, but only for a short time - more info here. https://www.netweather.tv/forum/topic/16103-need-help-on-the-siteforum/?page=140#comment-3574479

       

  21. Its really nice to see your pattern threads returning!

  22. My own dad screwing with me off yet again!  Blowtorch and muggy wet, windy and stormy maritime tropical Atlantic garbage yet again?!  Definitely autumn at its worst for me.

    1. lassie23

      I wonder if El Nino will make another comeback this year and wreck autumn again?  I bloody 'ope not...

    4. karyo

      karyo

      It shouldn't be too strong this time based on the forecasts.

  24. Please comeback Snowmaiden!  We miss you!

  25. Thank you for your "Stop Dangerous Global Warming" thread.  That thread is my favourite ever!  I agree with you that Geo-Engineering will give us our best hope of avoiding disaster.  However I am deeply concerned that our time is running out fast.  The last 3 years have already been too hot for my liking but it puzzles me that the world is still in no hurry to change things around.  Surly the heat must be getting to everyone by now?  The way things are going with human nature and Global Warming I am not optimistic about the future.

      "but it puzzles me that the world is still in no hurry to change things around" - such is the power of the fossil fuel industry, sadly.

      @Lettucing Gutted, @Nick L Thank you for your constructive input and encouragement to this discussion. The reason I posted this thread was because I saw there was little discussion elsewhere on the Forum about how to mitigate AGW given that countries around the World are reluctant to impose heavy tariffs on companies and organisations that produce CO2 (which is understandable) and little other discussion as to how we might mitigate the effects of rising CO2 levels.

      It is a little sad that rather than provoke some serious discussion about proposed geo-engineering solutions, about the pro, cons and feasibility that some have felt it necessary to diss them out of hand with comments like "insane", "crazy idea" with one posting a clip of a pink fairy in fantasy land. Some folk do need to grow up!
